Papakura Stream Restoration Project Launch

Caryn Wilkinson Reporter from Community News

An initiative to restore and protect Papakura stream is being rolled out by Conservation Volunteers New Zealand and Mondelez New Zealand.

The Papakura Stream Restoration Project will be launched at Brookby Wildlife Habitat on May 26.

The project will kick off with the planting of 12,500 trees and the installation of nearly 400 metres of Future Post fencing, made from recycled soft plastics.

The project aims to boost conservation and teach people about recyling soft plastics.

The initiative will restore and protect five kilometres of the waterway over the next three years and habitat for such native species as the longfin eel, tui and the long-tailed bat.

Most of the stream's original habitat has been lost to agriculture, industry and urban development due to wetland draining.

This has led to a massive reduction in forest cover and water quality, reducing habitats for native species and increasing pollution of the waterway.
